Aston Martin V8 Vantage

Aston Martin V8 Vantage

The new Aston Martin Vantage is expected to arrive in USA showrooms sometime during the second quarter of 2018 with a price tag of $149,995.

"We believe the Vantage GTE will bring further success worldwide to Aston Martin Racing in the coming years". Many Aston Martins are notorious for having an outdated and boring interior, but that is no longer true for the Vantage. But this isn't just a new body on the old race car's chassis.

The interior has been created to be sports auto focused with sharp lines in place of the usual swooping curves.

The Vantage sports a lower driving position for a more immersive driving experience.

There are three dynamic drive modes - Sport, Sport Plus and Track - each of which are integrated with the powertrain, transmission, suspension and steering systems.

Other standard equipment includes keyless entry and auto stop/start, park distance sensors, an 8-inch LCD screen, Bluetooth, navigation and iPhone playback.

SCHP bringing awareness to texting, driving as holiday travel increases
Starting Wednesday, the Florida Highway Patrol is expected to step up its presence for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Monday, New Jersey's roads had seen 538 fatalities in 2017 - the product of 510 deadly crashes.

The Vantage interior also offers generous stowage space, with useable room behind the seats and generous double-tier storage areas.

Like its road-car counterpart, the Vantage GTE will use a Mercedes-AMG 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 for motivation. The interior has been heavily reworked to mould comfortably and stylishly around the passengers, with an array of leather, Alcantara, and carbon fibre options available to customize the vehicle to the owner. Set low and as far back in the chassis as possible for optimal centre-of-gravity and ideal 50:50 weight distribution, the high performance, and high efficiency engine will do the 0-100 km/h 3.6 seconds, and keeps the fun going until 310 km/h.

The V8 engine develops 510PS and 685Nm of torque. There's no word on the engine's output but Aston Martin Racing said "factory drivers have worked hard to optimize the drivability and performance" of the mill.

Trump escalates LaVar Ball feud: 'Poor man's Don King'
Trump tweeted last week after saying he had sought the help of Chinese President Xi Jinping during his 12-day trip in Asia. It's a really big deal, especially in China.

The allows it to accelerate from 0 to 60mph in 3.5 seconds and on to a maximum speed of 195mph.

Though the new 2018 Vantage may not be as exciting as the brand's £2.5 million Valkyrie hypercar or quite as newsworthy as the next model from its DB Series, it is undoubtedly more important. Why?

The 2018 Aston Martin Vantage GTE will replace the V8 Vantage GTE, a auto Aston Martin Racing calls its "most successful competition vehicle of all time".
